Show Notes

On this episode of Solutions News, we welcome the honorable Monika Penukonda, director of the Divine Lineage Meditation & Healing Center in Mendocino, CA.  She was in Santa Barbara to raise awareness and funding for projects that exhibit possible ways to live in harmony as a community in times of a changing climate, especially in areas like Mendocino which are struggling in the face of power shut-offs and fire breakouts. Monika brings in a spiritual perspective of living in harmony as we move into an environmentally unsettled future. 


Because climate change is warming Earth by the day, it is essential for builders to consider adverse climate conditions such as fires, drought, and flooding in construction.  In addition to hosting Monika as the featured guest, the show also explores innovative, sustainable, and resilient building construction for the future.  Two specific technologies mentioned are Rammed Earth construction and 3D Printed housing.  After our “didyaknows”, we turn our eyes to Copenhagen, Denmark.  This city nearly burned to the ground several times in its history, which perhaps is one of the reasons it stands out today as one of the “greenest” cities today.

Monika Penukonda, Director at Divine Lineage

Monika trained in Vedic philosophy for 15 years in India, working closely with the spiritual master, Sri Kaleshwar. She assisted him in codifying translated knowledge from ancient palm leaf manuscripts that reveal how to awaken the divine potential in human beings. He asked her to make this knowledge accessible and practical for Westerners. The philosophy of this ancient body of knowledge reveals that solutions to healing ourselves and our planet will be found in the feminine. There will be a re-awakening of a reverence for the Divine Mother and the sacred feminine that will restore harmony on the earth. 


"The Divine Mother represents the feminine face of God—in every culture, race, or religion. When we connect to the feminine healing power of the divine, a higher collective consciousness emerges. All of nature moves into a higher state of being—women, men, children, plants and animals of Earth, forming a more loving, healthy, peaceful world.” 

Monika's focus is the rise of the feminine in our world and the balancing of the masculine and feminine energies to bring the change we need in society. It’s important that feminine energy comes forward now to heal and protect this creation. Today, she is devoted to awakening others through the energy of the Divine Mother at the Center in Mendocino County, as well as online broadcasts to a worldwide spiritual community.

Monika will be in Santa Barbara to raise awareness and funding for projects at the Divine Mother Meditation & Healing Center that will exhibit ways to live in harmony as a community in times of changing climate. This is especially urgent in areas like Mendocino which are struggling in the face of power shortages and fire breakouts. The Center will be a model for living in harmony with nature using Rammed Earth construction, a five-thousand-year-old, environmentally friendly building method, as well as a local sustainable microgrid, and the ancient Vedic science of Vaastu. 


She will bring a spiritual perspective of living in harmony as we move into an environmentally unsettled future.
